IT firms are al­ways in search of young tal­ent. Most IT firms and com­put­ing in­dus­try gi­ants of­fer in­tern­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties. This year, how­ever, the boom in the e-com­merce sec­tor has also led to an up­surge of open­ings for in­terns.

While get­ting hands-on ex­pe­ri­ence along with aca­demics does add value to your CV, but who can re­sist the cherry on the cake: the stipend that some of th­ese com­pa­nies of­fer to the in­terns? And then, even top com­pa­nies can­not deny that young tal­ent is al­ways wel­come at the work­place dur­ing this time of the year.

They in­fuse dar­ing ideas into an or­gan­i­sa­tion and also give se­nior man­agers an in­sight into the think­ing of to­day’s youth,” says Shamita Ghosh, lead manager, tal­ent ac­qui­si­tion, Book­MyShow. So, here are some com­pa­nies in search of en­thu­si­as­tic young stu­dents like you.
